We stayed an the lower floor of The Beach House. It was a nice size and had 2 bedrooms. One had a king and a double, and the other had a king. I would recommend the front beach house vs Corazon for the extra cost. It was perfect for 2 couples who are there for to relax and enjoy. We weren't there for the fishing.
The house was beautifully situated right on the beach, which we had all to ourselves. There was a lovely shaded sandy area and palapas, hammocks, and loungers to use on the beach.
Nikke, the owner was very helpful with anything we needed. She recommended some great restaurants in town, and also arranged a boat tour on Christian's boat. Our stay was total serenity, mind you we were the only ones on the premises for the night.
The town of Punta Allen is powered by generators, so power is only available from 11-2pm and 6-11pm. That means no air conditioning at night. Nikki provides battery powered fans for some of the night, and we found out she also has power inverter for things like CPAP machines. It was very windy during our stay, so the mosquitos were kept to a minimum, but we were prepared with major amounts of deet just in case.
The rates are pretty high for the rustic type accomodations, but keep in mind you are at the end of a Peninsula, and ammenities in such a location come at a price. If you would rather trade the private beach for modern conveniences like a pool or A/C, there are other locations in town for you.
